Tonight's Emma Raducanu vs Maria Sakkari live stream continues the Cinderella story. And early reports suggest that the former, the 18-year-old Brit, could be earning as much as $138 million off of this tournament if she bags it all. So, does Raducanu do it again in this US Open live stream, and shock the world?

Let's start with some perspective. Raducanu entered this tournament un-seeded, and is the 150th-ranked women's tennis player; just a few months back she was around 360. Oh how things have changed. Now, she's a credible threat to make it to the final by taking down the 17th-seeded Sakkari, who is the world's 18th-best.

How did this happen? Well, she just toppled someone even higher on the totem pole: the 11th-seeded Belinda Bencic, who is is the world's No. 12. And she did it in straight (albeit tough and testing) sets: 6-3, 6-4. In fact, she's yet to drop a set all tournament, including the qualifiers.

That said, Sakkari's also giving upsets, taking down the 4th-seed Karolína Plíšková and the 6th-seed Bianca Andreescu in her previous rounds. And so Raducanu is still the underdog. 

Caesar's Sportsbook as of this morning had Sakkari at a -150 favorite and Raducanu at +120. Here's how to watch Emma Raducanu vs Maria Sakkari online:
